Chow down on healthy, fiber-rich pizza, eggplant lasagna and meatballs

Here's a great reason to boost your fiber intake.

According to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, it's a type of carb that can't be digested, meaning that it passes right through your body.

It helps control your hunger. Most adults need to consume at least 20-30 grams of it per day, and you can get it from whole grains, beans, apples, blueberries and nuts. Plus, it has other health benefits.

Seems like a no-brainer, right? Eat more fiber, feel more full. But many of us dont get the amount we need. And that why we have registered dietician Tanya Zuckerbrot, the creator of the F-Factor Diet, here to help us make smart food choices for all three meals of the day.
